I got a message to night asking if I would be willing to open up and run the indoor range next Tuesday 13th for underlever rifle. The Club has introduced an on line booking system. You book slots and a maximum of four shooters are allowed with an RCO. With Covid restrictions in place.
How are your Clubs responding to the changes.

Is that allowed, thought indoor sport was not happening as of yet?

My club is opening as of next Thursday with all the same measures as before. Online booking, every other firing point, cleaning products a'plenty, a form to confirm you don't have symptoms etc.

Christel - Indoor sports open 12th April.

Yes, I believe you are not allowed to socialise indoors but can be indoors with other people from 12th April. So go shooting, just dont talk to anyone! lol

Honestly...

Not that it makes any difference to me as I will not be going inside anytime soon.

Luckily our club has indoor and outdoor ranges.

Crossing my fingers that we all will be enjoying our sport soon.

We will have to phone and make an appointment for a half-hour 'slot'. I think they allow 5 or 6 shooters at a time.

You come in, shoot and go home again. There is no socialising inside the club.

No socialising in the range.
Maintaining social distance and sanitising.

Yes, Our outdoor club opened when they eased the restrictions.. last Sunday was the first proper club day, although some people have used it during the week.
Only 4 shooters at a time (to give 2 m distancing), specially Covid trained RO's, no socialising on the range.
